CLEMSON – It wasn’t the defensive effort everybody expected as the two offenses combined for almost 800 yards, but Clemson remains undefeated with a 34-17 win over Boston College.

No. 6 Clemson moves to 6-0 with the win and Boston College drops to 3-4.

completed 27-of-41 passes for 420 yards and three touchdowns, while adding 32 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

THE BAD: Boston College accounted for 246 yards of offense, including 159 yards rushing. Myles Willis came into the game with 18 carries for 122 yards, but amassed 88 yards on 15 carries.

THE UGLY: The Clemson offense has shown flashes of being great, but the turnovers will be a problem in a close game. Deshaun Watson threw two interceptions and could have been picked off a couple of more times, as the Tigers lost the turnover battle 2-0. This is the second straight week Clemson has been on the losing end of the turnover margin – minus-four in against Georgia Tech and Boston College. The turnovers led to 10 Boston College points.

has caught a touchdown pass in each of Clemson’s last four games. The only other such streak was in 1983 by K.D. Dunn.

WHAT’S NEXT: Clemson travels to Miami for what we think will be a primetime matchup with the Hurricanes at Sun Life Stadium.

Boston College travels to Louisville, as the Eagles are looking for their first ACC win.
